Sondel Beach House Reviews

"Our stay was magnificent"

Reviewed February 2016

We wish that it was not a week ago that we were at Sondel and that we were just arriving. Our stay was magnificent. We all concurred that one of the highlights of our week was the house. You have thought of all the comfort alternatives and we were constantly pleased to find another well considered feature. These included the glass door partitioning, the fans, the ability to shelter from any wind position, the gas braai, plenty of cupboard space, surround sound, fridge near the pool, premium DSTV etc...
We were also very appreciative of the little extras you had provided like the flowers on arrival, soap in all the bathrooms, toilet paper, salt and pepper, 30 seconds, cards etc. These all make a great difference.
Thank you for making your delightful house available to us and I am sure we will be in contact again quite soon.

Sondel House"

Wow what a lovely home, we were so pleased with our choice the house was in a perfect location for the beach, I felt confident that the children could walk down the boardwalk safely onto the beach. We rented with family & friends in February 2015 as we were getting married near plettenberg bay and this was a perfect base for all of us. The house was immaculate and Delwin was so accommodating for our needs and met my parents prior to us arriving. The house had everything you could possibly need. The pool area was suffcient enough for us all and we had some lovely times relaxing and enjoying each others...
company around this. We used the gas BBQ upstairs on the balcony a few times and entertained our wedding party there a few days later and everyone was so complementary on the property. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of linen and towels, also a washing machine if you needed which I did with two boys!! The kitchen had everything you needed to cook breakfast and evening meals, plenty of glasses and having the dishwasher with us all was superb.
This house made our wedding so much more special and i will never forget the great times we all shared in it and on the beach. Thank you Sondel Family Trust for letting us rent it.

"Fabulous Beach House offering the best of Plett"

Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We had a fantastic stay with friends, the house is perfectly suited for this or a large family. Great attention to detail in the furnishing and the house lacks nothing. Everything (linen, appliances etc.) was of a high standard and incredibly comfortable. Wonderfully close to Robberg and a lovely pool area. Highly recommended!...

"Superb house in Plettenberg Bay"

Reviewed June 30, 2014 for a stay in May 2013

Sondel Beach House is a gem. It is very well equipped and it is obvious that a lot of thought has gone in to every aspect of the house, from luxurious bathrooms to a drinks fridge off the patio next to the swimming pool. The rooms are beautifully appointed, the beds very comfortable and the kitchen is exceptionally well stocked with crockery, cutlery and serving platters. The views are lovely and the proximity to the beach is good. The house is beautifully appointed...
with quality fittings and fixtures.....it is a 5 star experience! It is the little things though that make a difference, like having double adaptors in each room for charging electronic equipment and the heated towel rails in the bathrooms. It was so nice to stay in a property that catered for 10 people and to find that there was sufficient fridge space to stock food for that number of people; and the separate drinks fridge is a bonus! All in all, it is a luxurious, well equipped house in which one can have a wonderful holiday!

"A Truly Wonderful Break"

Reviewed May 2013

We had a truly wonderful break at SONDEL from 13th to 20th May 2013 and we were very happy with all aspects of the house, the location, being so close to the beach and the walks. The entertainment options at SONDEL are amazing and you can find shelter from wind and rain and still be outside! We particularly enjoyed the evening log fires in the outside fire pit followed by a braai next to the heated pool. The upstairs entertainment Patio and dining room lounge were also put to good use. ...
The view to the Robberg peninsula is spectacular and we suggest that anyone staying at SONDEL should do one of the walks in the Robberg peninsula. An unforgettable experience!
To add to the enjoyment, I was able to land a 20+ kg Duckbill Ray right in front of the wooden boardwalk from SONDEL to the beach and followed that with a 2Kg White Steenbras the next day.
All in all we had a wonderful (and definitely, repeatable) holiday at SONDEL! Tim and Kerry Tindall,

"What a lovely, spacious and homely beach house!"

Reviewed May 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sondel Beach house. From the well equipped kitchen with its lovely views, the spacious and comfortable en suite bedrooms, to the fire pit and outside seating areas, our stay was wonderful. We were there with 3 other couples and the house is spacious enough to accommodate everyone easily. The kitchen is very well equipped and there is evidence that much thought has gone into this house...like lots of coffee cups, so that you are not washing cups all the time! ...
The house is situated a stone’s throw from the beautiful Robberg beach, which is just a short stroll along the boardwalk. We also liked the fact that there are several seating areas around the house and on the balconies, which means that, no matter what the weather does, you can always find a place to sit that is protected and comfortable.
Sondel Beach House is a great place for a holiday. It is very well equipped and has many luxurious touches that make your stay just a bit more special. Five star accommodation in a magnificent setting and with lovely views! Thank you.

"Wir hatten vielfältige Erfahrungen mit Ferienhäusern"

Reviewed May 2013

Sehr geehrter Herr Eggers,
Es ist mir ein Bedürfnis Sie wissen zu lassen, daß wir in Ihrem wunderbaren Haus eine herrliche Zeit verbracht haben. Wir hatten vielfältige Erfahrungen mit Ferienhäusern bzw. Wohnungen als Eltern von vier Kindern, wobei unsere älteste Tochter behindert ist. Sie war nicht mit in Afrika, sie lebt seit einiger Zeit in einem Heim der Lebensilfe. Damals suchten wir immer private Unterkünfte und waren oft enttäuscht, da diese oft mit den ausrangierten ...
Möbeln eingerichtet wurden. So beschlossen wir für die "schönste Zeit des Jahres" uns ein Domizil in Italien zu erwerben, wo wir viele schöne Urlaube verbracht haben und nun ohne Kinder, verbringe ich immer noch zwei Monate im Sommer dort, mit meiner behinderten Tochter drei Wochen, mit Freunden, Frau Junker kommt regelmäßig, und Familie taucht auch dort ab und zu auf. Für dieses Treffen fiel die Entscheidung, auf gemeinsamen Wusch von Frau Junker und mir, bereits im Januar. Alle fanden die Idee toll. Meine jüngste Tochter, auch schon 32, klein und zierlich, hatte die Befürchtung: "Als Jüngste muß ich sicher im Wohnzimmer schlafen." Als wir dann in Ihrem Haus ankamen, zerstreuten sich diese Gedanken sofort. Schade, daß Sie die Begeisterung Ihrer Feriengäste nicht erleben können. Man hörte Begeisterungsrufe aus allen Ecken des Hauses. Die Verteilung der Zimmer wurde ausgelost und meine Jüngste zog den Volltreffer, das Luxuszimmer, wie wir das Schlafzimmer oben benannt haben. Wir haben die Großzügigkeit des Hauses mit seinen vielen Möglichkeiten sehr genossen. Die Kinder deckten jeden Tag woanders den Tisch für unseren Brunch. Im Küchenbereich konnten wir alle zusammen agieren, das Abendessen am großen Tisch war wunderbar. Auf dem Balkon vor dem Wohnbereich wurde geraucht und gut getrunken, viel gesprochen und gelacht. Die Gestaltung des Hauses habe ich als sehr wohltuend empfunden, sehr geschmackvoll eine einheitliche Linie durchgezogen, schöne Materialien verwendet, die Küche wunderbar gestaltet, mit gutem Geschirr und schönem Design, und alles sehr gepflegt. Alle diese Umstände haben sicherlich auch viel zu unserem fantastischen, harmonischen Zusammensein beigetragen.
Meine Mail hat sich leider ohne Abschluß selbständig verabschiedet. Ich hoffe sie hat Ihren Weg zu Ihnen gefunden. Ich schicke Ihnen ein dickes Lob und Dank für die Zeit, die wir dort verbracht haben und wünsche Ihnen noch viele zufriedene Gäste.
Ich grüße Sie sehr herzlich Gerda Sellmeier
